He extended his best wishes as Bangladesh commemorates the centennial of the birth of Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman

US Ambassador in Dhaka Earl Miller has laid emphasis on having the same courage and discipline like Bangladesh's Liberation War to fight back against Covid-19.

"During the Liberation War, Bangladeshis showed the world the meaning of courage, discipline, and sacrifice," he said in a message on Thursday.

The US ambassador said now, as the entire world confronts a new threat – the coronavirus, Covid-19 – they all need to draw on those same qualities that are in such abundance here, to fight back against the disease and protect ourselves, reports UNB.

On Bangladesh's 49th Independence Day, Ambassador Miller shares, "I wish to congratulate the people of Bangladesh on your 49th anniversary of independence."

He also extended his best wishes as Bangladesh commemorates the centennial of the birth of Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman ahead of 2021 Golden Jubilee.

So far, 44 patients have tested positive for Covid-19 in Bangladesh. Among them, five died, while 11 patients have recovered. Currently, there are 33 active patients, all of whom are either hospitalized or in quarantine at home.

The fast spreading coronavirus, which was first reported in China's Wuhan, has claimed more than 24,000 lives and infected over 531,800 people across the world till date, according to Worldometer.
